Conditional Tour A gives you every chance at optimal results, reserves a date in advance, provides great contingency planning no matter what the result, and frees up your day the day before when the lotteries are held. It also allows us to take bookings in advance irrespective of permits: A true Win-Win!


Why Hassle with all this permit stuff? Let us serve you!

Conditional Tour A is intended for folks who lost the online Wave and South Coyote Buttes lottery or did not enter in time. On conditional tours we take the hassle out of the in person lottery by going in on your behalf to the in-person lottery in Kanab the day before departure. It allows you to reserve a day in advance and let the lottery results determine the destination. This means you don’t have to worry about availability of tours at the last minute, while also taking a chance at getting lucky. Click the following link if you would like a refresher on basic facts about the permit system. Please also know that the Wave, should we win permits, is an 8 mile round trip hike over moderate terrain. Please do not book this tour if you are unsure about your ability to do the hike. If this is the case try Conditional Tour B for South Coyote Buttes and/or White Pocket or simply book in for White Pocket (no permits necessary). Both of these options are easier hiking. All groups on conditional tours win or lose together. We can not accept remainder permits or split groups.

Conditional Tour A includes a draw for the Wave and for South Coyote Buttes. If Wave permits are won (5%) the tour will be the Wave Tour. If we lose the Wave Lottery, we will go to the South Coyote Buttes Lottery an hour later. If we win South Coyote Buttes (65%), then the tour will be the White Pocket Tour which requires no permits.
